  1. I have been trying to Install Windows Xp on a compaq presario 7470, everytime it freezes on set-up is loading files (setup executive) I have formatted the drive, changed the cd rom, the cd drive, the memory, the cpu, nothing I change seems to work, then I tried to reload win98 and it freezes.
    what could this be? Help.....

    cpu is AMD-K6-2
    533 mhz
    128 mb ram

    It sounds to me like there is something wrong with one of your pieces of hardware. I would suggest removing everything except the CPU, Memory, CDROM and HDD. Take out your modem, NIC, sound card, etc.

    This should eliminate your problems. If not post back :p
